high Diamond SP for free

SDS

I hate it I mean every game I feel like I’m playing a 98 or above pitcher. I wish this game stops letting u get free good pitchers. Like idk. I guess cuz I started late n haven’t gone they do rewards fast like others I’m complaining but so many guys buy these teams with stubs and then get free good pitchers. I just wanna stop facing Kluber and other free SP becuz it makes the game boring. I rather have a whole bunch of pitchers people choosing from then every team have same 99 or 98 pitchers u face everyday

SDS

This makes no sense. Play enough and then you'll be able to get your own high pitcher for free and it'll be an even match. Take them away, and only people that buy Stubs will benefit, and that would enrage all of the no money spent guys. And besides, do you really think people that buy their teams won't also buy their starters? This is the most illogical, ignorant post I've seen in quite some time. Stop whining and put the time in to get the cards you want for free. Yeesh, we are seriously at the point where we complain about getting top tier cards for free rather than buying them? I've officially seen it all.

SDS

I’m talking about all these high pitchers that people are using as relievers

SDS

I’m upset about someone bringing in all these SP pitches as relievers becuz of the lack of bullpen arms out there.

And your solution to this problem is to stop giving people good cards for free, and to give them to people who want to pay for them? Do you not see a problem with your logic here? That isn't fixing the problem, it's exacerbating it.

I agree with a lot of what OP is saying. Free cards are good when they are decent but not top of the line so it helps lower level players compete, but when those cards are very easy to get for anyone that plays this game frequently, it gets annoying. Personally, I get less enjoyment out of using Kluber and Newhouser than I lose by having to face them in half of my games so I would prefer a system where cards like that didn't exist.

My solution would be not to give people 99 and 98 overall pitchers for free and cap it at 95 or sumn. Basically all u have to do is grind to silver 1 and you get two 99/98 overall pitchers when they don’t even have any of them n the market. Plus at this point in the game everyone is now sending SP to the bullpen which is the most annoying and [censored] I ever seen. If we didn’t have all these free high diamonds then every game we wouldn’t have to face a kluber or Hal in bullpens. I say give one out at the beginning and that’s it. I rather people grind good pitchers thru affinity or sumn than give out elites that people manipulate and pretty much once everyone gets to Gold ur gonna b facing 99 pitchers every game and in bullpen.

Sheesh, relax dude. He has a point, pitchers are the one X factor in this game and not so much now because the game has been out for a while, but it did seem people were rocking the 99 Kluber 1-2 weeks in.....it should be harder to attain top not starters.

SDS

Yea I have no problem hitting any pitchers Idm really but what gets annoying is when I grind for all my players for the most part then u go face someone who brought they entire team obviously and then on top that they at silver level and they have kluber and fingers and all those. So no matter what happens within the first couple innings they literally can pull out two or three 98+ pitchers out bullpen and the whole game u facing the hall of game every game

SDS

They don’t have enough non-grindable hitters for them to have all these high level pitchers without counters. But what they need to do is remove the glitch to call SP out the bullpen

I agree, being able to use SP as relievers is lame

SDS

How about making those 99 pitches just 4 pitch pitchers than. At least u can adjust better. But yet SDS was make 90+ cards that have 4 pitches in a game where pitching even in good spots can hurt you

That isn't a glitch. It's an intentionally added feature that they marketed prior to the game's release.

SDS

I don’t understand how they don’t even have a diamond RP and all the diamond CPs are gained thru BR or RS except 1. I rather them give out free good bullpen arms than to make a game where they give u chances to earn all these unbelievable hitters thru grinding affinity but u can get any good pitchers unless u play the game a lot. I literally faced three guys in a row with kluber then they all bring in some HIGH diamond starter and rotate them every 2 innings

Why even buy the few relievers they have when u can just load up on SP and wait you get three free by time ur gold. U can literally use all three of them and go thru a whole game . Basically it cost u like 50k to get a good pitching team while it cost a [censored] load more to get viable hitters

I’m completely uninspired to keep grinding and play RS atm until they come out with better players in the innings programs and/or release wayyy more options for pitchers. As someone who is good at this game I’m up near all star or watever and now I’m dealing with guys who in silver and gold and it’s annoying because I’m at bronze 75. I have no motivation to keep playing RS which is my favorite because the lack of options at my level and the lack of players I can acquire without grinding. U can’t even buy good hitters right now and all those affinity players just a bunch of long grinds that don’t pay off much. No matter what this game takes skill AND good players, but when u let people who just buy they way thru the game and then benifit from free high cards that can’t be purchased you making those who don’t spend money frustrated because at this point I gotta hope whoever I play don’t use SPs for relievers and / also don’t play with a pitcher I seen a thousand times

What does buying your team have to do with anything. I have 99 Mantle. He happens to be this old guys favorite player. This old guy is also "essential". We dont have the free time to grind players like people that are at home from work due to the pandemic or just unemployed. My mommy dosent give me money for stubs. I earn every dollar I spend on stubs in a lot harder fashion than the guys sitting around grinding all day. I dont buy players....I earn them.

As of today there are 52 diamond SP, and 22 diamond RP/CP not called Kluber/newhouser/oswalt
People are the reason it's happening, not lack of options/ease of getting certain ones.

SDS

Ya know, I forgot where I posted it (it was either here or The Show's Reddit) but before release, I suggested that they not give out high diamond pitchers like Clayton Kershaw (TS19) , Nolan Ryan (TS19), Corey Kluber, and Hal Newhouser in the XP Path for a number of reasons:

1.) It will naturally bring out more variety in terms of pitchers users will face online

2.) If there is no easy-to-access "elite" SPs, you're more likely to increase runs scored per game which will usually result in users having much more fun by increasing the viability of all of The Show player's offensive capabilities.

3.) It encourages experimentation until a user can fill out a rotation the user is comfortable with that isn't dictated just by taking the highest overall pitcher in a funneled XP Path that 80% of the user-base will just take who the "consensus best starting pitcher" is. Lets face it, the smartest option is 99% of the time going to be to take the best pitcher available since you have to fill out five SPs and seven relievers and a 95+ overall pitcher is almost always going to outlast a position player in terms of how much time they spend in on your squad.
